Any Chicago guys here?

Curious if anyone attended and has pictures of the Aston Martin one - 77 event at LFSC.

The weather held me up - ended up missing one hack of a car weekend.

Next year is our year :-)

I skipped out on the One-77 viewing. Personally I am not a fan of the styling of the car. I equate it to a woman in a body building competition. Aston's are supposed to be pretty with nice round curves and a feminine body. The One-77 is that on steroids, not my cup of tea.

I'll be at the McLaren grand opening this Saturday however.

McLaren should be a lot of fun.

Assume you are getting a test demo or two for the weekend.

Cubs fans are the second best fans in the world

I'll probably try her out soon enough.. This would be the third time seeing the car in the flesh otherwise (launch at Pebble in 2010, Chicago viewing last year, and now this). The demo they have now looks sharp, black with CF accents.

Right now the car is in storage. Which hard to believe was very hard to find storage in the chicago area. Well at least that met my expectations. I will get pictures up once i take it out.
